2. Body of the Abstract

There is a 250 word limit to the body of your abstract (Please do not include author name(s) and organizational affiliation(s)). It may include one diagram, which should be in GIF or JPEG format and of 300 KB or less in size. The diagram can be in either landscape or portrait orientation and will be reduced to about 75 mm x 45 mm when printed. Please note that even if you submit a color diagram, it will be printed in black and white. In case the abstract includes a diagram, the body of the abstract should be up to 150 words.

3. Registration ID and Password

Upon your abstract submission, you should “create new account” at first. With this ID and your own password you chose when you first registered as a user, you will be able to log in to your personal abstract submission page and edit or amend your abstract at any time up to the deadline of abstract submission.

※You will be responsible for safekeeping of your password and other confidential information.

4. Presentation Language for General Presentation

Please select your presentation language, among “English”, “Japanese or English” and “Japanese preferred” at the time of registration. Note that all slides and posters must be in English only.

  • Please note that you have ever received the YIA in the past, you are not able to apply for the YIA.
  • If your abstract is nominated for the YIA, you must submit a paper to the "Journal of Arrhythmia (English)".

Acceptance Results

  • The final selection of submitted abstracts will be done by the congress presidents, based on the reviews of the Scientific Program Committee.
  • Notification of acceptance will be sent in the middle of April to the email address that was provided during the registration process. We will also post the results on our website.
  • Please note that we may not be able to fulfill all requests with regard to venue and/or program.
